Amber Rose, former (?) gold digger, has found the love of her life and is happy with being Amber Rose. In a recent interview with The Life Flies, Rose dished on new projects (including her blonde weave), her music and Kanye’s new Theraflu. Highlights below.
ON WHAT SHE HATES (IF ANYTHING) ABOUT BEING AMBER ROSE:
I don’t hate being myself. Sometimes I hate what the media tries to portray me as because I’m really just like a silly goof ball that has a good heart. But they try to portray me as other things that’s not really cool but my fans know who I really am and people around me who I love. They know who I really am so that’s all that matters.
ON HER MUSIC:
I’ve been approached by a label already and I’m just going to do it when it’s fun. I got engaged, so my priorities kind of changed a little but I’m going to make music when it’s fun. I’m not quite sure if I’m going to do an entire album now because I don’t want to put out music then it’s like, “Oh, now you have to go do a lot of shows” and by that time me and Wiz want to have kids and stuff like that. My priorities have definitely changed.
ON WHETHER VIDEO MODELING IS A DEAD END:
Well, obviously it’s not a dead end because I’m still around.
ON BEING ONE OF THE LUCKY VIDEO MODELS STILL AROUND:
I am. I’ll admit to that. I am. My life is probably one in a billion but I have to be honest with you, when I did videos I wasn’t shaking my ass in videos and I wasn’t doing any ratchetness. I always kept it classy and very professional. I did videos with Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Chris Brown, Fabulous and Julez Santana. These girls have to understand that it’s a job and you have to be very, very professional and that’s why all of those men, to this day, respect me so much because I never sold myself short. I went there and did my job. I looked beautiful, got my little check and I went home.
ON KANYE WEST’S THERAFLU TRACK:
What did I think about the song? I don’t know Kanye as a person anymore. I don’t know him anymore; it’s been almost two years. At first, I didn’t understand what is he trying to say but I think I took it as a positive at the end and I feel like it’s cool. He respects Wiz as he should and I respect his decisions. I think people fail to realize that Kanye, he’s just my ex-boyfriend. We weren’t married. We didn’t have children together. We both moved on with our lives and it seems like we’re both really happy.
